"Integrity is timeless … trust once earned can’t be taken for granted."
I have a unique blend of legal, tax and accounting skills. I specialise in public and private mergers and acquisitions transactions and capital raising. I advise local and foreign groups in a wide variety of transactions which encompass the full ‘life cycle’ of their business activities; from advising on tax effective structure on start up or entry into Australia, through contract negotiations, raising capital, succession planning and ultimately to designing and implementing an exit strategy. My clients rely on me and I work hard to understand their business.
In advising on transactions I draw on the skills I developed in my career at an international accounting firm. My advice does not just have to be right – it has to be useful.
As part of advising on cross-border transactions I have provided extensive advice in relation to employee incentive plans particularly for Australian subsidiaries of European and North American groups.
I am an active participant in the International Bar Association, particularly the Closely Held and Growing Business Enterprise and Securities Law Committees. I am currently an Officer of the Securities Law Committee.
